38 editions published between 1977 and 2017 in English and Japanese and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strcturalism and semiology are perhaps the most significant systems of study have developed this century; they are now central to an astonishing range of fields and disciplines ...

Our treacherous hearts : why women let men get their way by Rosalind Coward( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

So much appears to have improved for women. In theory they have equal pay and opportunity; working mothers are no longer stigmatized; women are moving into the highest levels of politics. Yet in many fundamental ways, little has changed. It is still mainly women who take care of dependents, interrupting or downgrading their careers to do so. Women continue to relinquish privilege and power to their male partners, and seem happy - at least at first - to make sacrifices for their children. Are women really victims of a backlash against their newfound freedoms? Did feminism underestimate the satisfaction women get from mothering? Or is there evidence of a deeper complicity through which women keep themselves from breaking with traditional roles? Our Treacherous Hearts looks at women's collusion with male domination. Drawing from revealing interviews on women's feelings about men, children and work, Rosalind Coward explores why working women still do the majority of housework and childcare and are grateful for even small contributions by men, and why women leave good jobs to be at home - and then find that their supposedly idyllic time at home isn't as simple as they expected. As startling as it is compelling, Our Treacherous Hearts is an honest appraisal of what's really happening in contemporary women's lives and psyches. In the United Kingdom, Our Treacherous Hearts was an Evening Standard bestseller and the basis of a television documentary, "Seeking Approval: The Complicity of Women," also written by Rosalind Coward
Speaking personally : the rise of subjective and confessional journalism by Rosalind Coward( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whether in comment writing, personal columns, confessional journalism or blogging, speaking personally is a dominant feature of contemporary journalism. Yet critical discussion often ignores the personal voice, positioning first-person journalism as less worthy than 'objective' reporting. Speaking Personally explores how and why personal voices have come to play such an important role in journalism. Covering the history, functions and forms of personal journalism, the book examines the influence of 'New Journalism' in the 1960s and 1970s, considers the impact of social movements such as feminism and addresses ethical issues surrounding different genres of personal writing."--Page 4 of cover

9 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
